    Hello!
    I am writing this post to see if I could get some help from knowledgeable peafowl lovers. I am an actor and I have been doing a lot of research on peahen behavior because I am doing a character (from a Tennessee Williams play) that is completely inspired in a peahen (and also in someways in peacocks). Unfortunately, there's not a lot of material out there on their social behavior and I was wondering if anybody knows of a great video or documentary they could recommend. Also, any suggestions are welcome! (Any stories about how they communicate with one another, with their owners, or things that might be interesting for my study!)
    Thank you

    Youtube has lots of videos but this person has documented peafowl from mating to hatching chicks in a natural setting, no cages, there are 52 of videos on their chanel so this should be a great help to you.
    here is a link to their videos...
